This was a wonderful experience. I will do this more. I have done this in the past, I like how quick this was just like picking cherries off the tree. Shook Tom’s hand. He wasn’t interested and seemed upset. But the gospel grabbed him and he said the prayer. He had said he was catholic but after he said the prayer he immediately said “spreading the word is good… this is a good thing.” A guy seemed really tough at first, but then received Christ.
At a nursing home, We prayed for one man who seemed not too responsive, but we continued because the nurse said he was happy to have us pray for him. Later the nurse found me after talking to the man and said that he knew I had prayed for him and he liked it. I also got to pray with a nurse helper and asked if we could pray for something else for her. she asked for us to pray for her son in Iraq. She was worried about him. He is a Christian. Because my son just came back from Iraq, I told her I understood and asked for peace for her and protection for him. She was comforted to know that we had that in common and that God brought my son home in October.
While on the GAT in Billings, I met a young boy Dionne, age 8yrs, who was out soul-winning with his family at the Crow Reservation. As I sat down next to the boy he said ” I do not belong to anyone, I am a foster child and I belong to the State of Montana.” I spoke with him for about 15 minutes and explained to him that I too had been in a foster home for a while when I was a child. I told him that God had placed him with this family and that they were his brothers and sisters. I said to him that even if God were to move him someplace else in the days to come that they would always be his family and love him. I then told him that I never wanted to hear him ever say again that he did not belong to anyone. I left for a moment and when I returned his foster mom said “Dionne, I am your aunt didn’t you know that?” He replied, “I had no idea that you were my aunt.” As he said this he just looked stunned. Apparently no one had ever thought to tell him and his sister that their foster parents were really their aunt and uncle. A few days later the mother came up to me and said ” thank you for talking with Dionne the other day. He has been like a different child since then.” Apparently he and his sister had been going back for visitations with their mother and they were having a very hard time. The aunt told us later in the week that they had decided to file for custody of Dionne and his sister. She again thanked me for taking the time to talk to Dionne. I explained to her that I was honored that God had allowed me to be a part of healing one little boy’s heart.
I am watching your Sunday evening service. My husband left the house earlier to go for a ride on his motorcycle. I was just wondering where he went. The phone rang and it was my husband, he is at the Frederick County Fair winning people to the Lord. We went out into the nursing homes and on the streets with you. Praise the Lord! My husband and I went to nursing home on Saturday sept.13. a lady there who was not able to speak due to a stroke, she was able to ask Jesus into her heart with no problem at all. The nurse who came into her room was in total amazement. Another lady was in her room yelling and cursing. We entered the room and the nurse asked if we could please pray for this woman they had not been able to settle her down. So we prayed, and she asked Jesus into her heart. She hugged us and thanked us for praying for her.
